  • all in one soap bar

    All In One Soap Bar

    Introducing the All In One Soap Bar!

    What is this all in one bar exactly? Well, sometimes we want a bar that we can use for shaving, washing our body, washing our hair, and washing our face. Does this exist? It does now!

    What do you use this bar for?

    Practically anything. For those who like to keep it simple, you can use this bar:

    • To wash your face
    • Use it as a shaving bar
    • In place of body wash
    • As a shampoo bar

    Head, shoulders, knees, and toes…

    You’re singing the song now aren’t you?! I digress; this bar does it all. Simplify your daily routine by choosing one bar for all the things!

    1. Great for traveling – no need to distinguish between bars. Just take one. Or two, if you want to add variety.
    2. Shave your legs/face/underarms/other body part – Simply hold the bar in your hand, rub over the skin, then shave as normal. Much less waste than a can of shaving foam.
    3. Get rid of some of the plastic bottles in your shower by adding a few of these to your bathroom.
    4. Store them easily in a Block Dock (or 2, or 3), or by purchasing an ‘over-the-door’ stainless steel soap holder. We have one that holds about 15 bars easily!

    Doesn’t soap go mushy?

    Yes, if you store it incorrectly. So, get your hands on a decent soap dish such as the Block Dock, or a stainless steel soap dish. Or, if you’re a hard-core soap lover like myself, you’ll need to invest in a stainless steel soap caddy. These will easily hold 15 bars, depending on the size of the caddy.

    Keep the bar out of the stream of water, and don’t leave it sitting in water. This will make any bar go mushy. Keep it dry and it’ll last a long time.

  • beer and oat soap

    Beer & Oat Soap

    Beer Soap?!

    Sure, you’ve heard of drinking beer. But isn’t beer soap a bit of a stretch?

    Why? Why would you put beer in soap?!

    Excellent question. Well, you need a liquid in the mix to make soap. Most soapers use water. However, you can use many things; water, milk, goats milk, wine, beer…the list goes on. Each ingredient has it’s own benefits. As for beer, it’s said that beer in soap does the following:

    • The hops in beer (once in soap) help to soothe irritated skin, and contain skin softening properties
    • It’s said to be very moisturising
    • Makes for a multi-purpose bar used for washing your body, hair, or even face (I love this bar for my face)
    • The brewers yeast used in the manufacturing of the beer has antibacterial properties, and may work to fight acne
    • Lastly, beer soap is surely a great conversation starter!

    Earthy Box – Soap Kit

    Beer soap, hemp soap, and earthy tones come together in the Earthy Box

    Do you love soap bars, yet you’re not a fan of floral scents? Then the Earthy Box is made with you in mind.

    What on earth is in the Earthy Box?

    This is a soap box with a difference! It contains 3 body bars and 1 shampoo bar as shown here:

    • Beer & Oat Soap – Beer?! Yes, beer! Beer is lovely on your skin, and the oats act as a gentle exfoliator. This soap is scented lightly with cedarwood, so it has woody and earthy tones in it.
    • Hemp Soap – Hemp is in! Just to clarify, this is not made with ‘wacky backy’. Hemp looks similar, but contains extremely low levels of THC. However, hemp has loads of amazing properties; many of which benefit your skin. It’s said to balance out oily skin, prevent rashes, moisturise without clogging pores, and helps relieve acne. What’s not to love?
    • Nourish Body Bar – We have a few ‘earthy’ scents available in our body bar range. Therefore, there’ll be a surprise in the box as we’ll choose a bar from the available range at the time.
    • Solid Shampoo Bar – Haven’t tried solid shampoo yet? You’ll love it! Simply grab the bar, rub it on wet hair, put the bar down and rub your head to create a lather. Super easy and effective. Again, we’ll choose a bar in an earthy tone from the available range. Everyone loves surprises!

  • goats milk soap

    Goats Milk Body Soap

    Goats Milk Soap – For Sensitive Skin

    Goats milk is rich in vitamin A, selenium, and has a high fatty acid profile. This makes is perfect for soap.

    Why is it so good?

    • The high lactic acid content means it gently removes dead skin cells, making it a mild exfoliant.
    • As it helps remove dead skin, this keeps pores clear, and skin smoother and brighter.
    • It’s very gentle.
    • Goats milk soap doesn’t strip the skin of moisture, thus preventing your skin from drying out.

    Hemp Soap & Bag

    Why? Why would you put hemp in soap?!

    Excellent question. Well, you need some form of oil or fat to make soap. This just happens to be a very beneficial one. Hemp seed oil is said to do the following:

    • Possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
    • Aids in the healing of skin conditions
    • Deeply moisturises without making skin feel greasy
    • Has a light consistency, and is said to be helpful for acne-prone skin
    • Helps to soothe and calm irritated skin
    • The fatty acid profile of hemp seed oil mimics that of our own skin, making it great for all skin types
    • Finally, it’s a great conversation starter! You won’t find hemp soap in the supermarket…

    Kiwi Collection – Soap

    Introducing the Kiwi Collection of soap from Totally Balmy!

    We Kiwis are patriotic about a few things; one of which is our classic Kiwi food. I guess you could call sweets/lollies food. I know there’s probably a long list of food that comes to mind when you think of classic Kiwi delicacies. We’ve just added three new scents to our Nourish range of body soap.

     

    What is the Kiwi Collection?

    In this range we have:

    • Chocolate Pineapple (Smells just like Pineapple Lumps, though I’m sure that name is trade-marked!)
    • Chocolate Orange (Again, this smells just like Jaffas!)
    • Coconut Ice

    If you’re looking for a gift for someone, this would make a quirky and fabulous present!

  • baby soap

    Natural Baby Soap

    At last, a natural soap bar for babies.

    Babies have such delicate skin that it can be confusing knowing what to use. When I had my first child I was uncomfortable with the list of ingredients I saw on baby products. This discomfort led to many of the products you’ll find on this website.

    Some people use only water in their baby’s bath which is absolutely fine. Others prefer to use some form of cleansing product. If you fall into the second category, yet have sensitive skin, what do you do?

    Do you or your baby have sensitive skin?

    This bar may be perfect for you. Made for those with sensitive skin or allergies.

    Natural Castile Soap

    Natural Castile Soap

    Our Castile Coconut Soap is based on the traditional Spanish recipe for Castile Soap. What this means is that it’s as simple as soap gets. It contains as few as 3 ingredients; distilled water, sodium hydroxide, and olive oil. That’s it!

    With this in mind, Castile Soap is not designed to produce a lot of lather, so the ‘bubbliness’ of this soap is still less than the store bought soap you would otherwise find.

    What Is In This Castile Soap?

    This soap contains very few ingredients, and therefore is very mild. As a result, my clients have told me they use this on their face, body, babies, sensitive skin, and even their dogs!

    Castile Soap is traditionally much softer than other soaps, but will actually harden over time, making it last longer. Therefore, if you take care to store it properly, it’ll last well.  Whilst some of the scent may dissipate over time, the soap is totally safe to use, and can sit there for years. Have a read of the blog post I wrote on Soap Storage to give you some more background on this.

    Natural Exfoliating Face and Body Bars

    Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!

    Did you know there’s an easy way to help you achieve a healthy glow?

    Your body is constantly shedding skin, and it’s often not enough to simply wash your body. Using an exfoliating bar will help remove these dead skin cells, unclog your pores, and leave you with smooth ‘new’ skin.

    Our bars use natural exfoliants of pumice (for the face & body), and poppy seeds (for the body). This way you won’t be allowing little plastic beads to drain into the waterways, nor will you have to buy plastic body puffs. This is one of the most natural, environmentally-friendly ways to exfoliate your skin!

    How often you should use it is up to you. Start with once a week, and see how your skin feels.

    Refresh your skin, and exfoliate today!

    Ingredients: Coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, water, lye, essential/flavour oils, exfoliant, vitamin e, mica

    Natural Hemp Soap

     

    Hemp Soap?!

    I’m sure many people, on hearing the word ‘hemp’, think of wacky backy/marijuana…or any of the other colloquial names for the beautiful green leafed plant. Hemp seed oil does in fact come from the tall varieties of the cannabis plant. However, it does not contain the psychoactive compound called THC. Hemp seed oil and marijuana are two very different things!

    Why? Why would you put hemp in soap?!

    Excellent question. Well, you need some form of oil or fat to make soap. This just happens to be a very beneficial one. Hemp seed oil is said to do the following:

    • Possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
    • Aids in the healing of skin conditions
    • Deeply moisturises without making skin feel greasy
    • Has a light consistency, and is said to be helpful for acne-prone skin
    • Helps to soothe and calm irritated skin

    Shaving Soap

    Natural Shaving Soap

    So you have a good quality razor. Now all you need is a natural shaving bar to complete your shaving routine. This soap is safe to use on your face, body, and in your hair, so it’s a multi-purpose solid bar of goodness!

    What’s in it?

    Our shaving bar has been formulated with patchouli, lavender, and cedarwood. Patchouli is said to be a natural antiseptic with the benefit of protecting wounds, and has been known to help in the treatment of some skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

    Cedarwood oil is often found in aftershave, perhaps due to the fact it’s known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-septic qualities. It’s also said to fight fungal infections, and help treat acne.

    Finally, lavender is naturally anti-itch, anti-bacterial, anti-anxiety, and anti-fungal in nature. Therefore, the 3 essential oils in this recipe are a pretty fabulous combination for your skin.

    This bar also contains neem oil as part of the base recipe.

    Neem oil?

    Neem oil has been used for thousands of years for it’s medicinal properties. It’s widely used in the garden, as an insect repellent, in medicine, and in skin care. Neem oil is anti-microbial, and works by removing bacteria from the surface of the skin. Therefore, it helps in the treatment and prevention of acne as there’s no bacteria sitting on the skin’s surface. Neem is also said to prevent and treat scars, whilst reducing redness and inflammation.
